Make no mistake – you have a calling on your life.
God has chosen you to fulfill His purpose on this earth, and He has given you the gifts and passion to complete your mission. You don’t get to choose your talents, and while these skills are yours – given to you – they are yours to share and help someone else.
What an honor to be a nurse.
Your special gifts are given to you individually to enable you to live out His purpose for you. Some are skilled with computers, numbers, organization and leadership. Others excel at communication, listening, speaking and teaching.
God has also gifted you with certain passions within your heart. Passion is a fire that burns and drives you on the path to fulfill your mission.
What would you do if they didn’t pay you to do it?
What have you always loved to do your entire life?
What did you enjoy doing as a child?
Some nurses are passionate about working with seniors, children, and patients with heart disease or breast cancer. Others are passionate about ministering to abused women or working to increase AIDS awareness.
Be aware that sometimes we develop a passion from a loss we experienced in our own lives. Perhaps someone has lost a child or spouse, survived a divorce or a debilitating disease and finds herself passionate to reach out and help others experiencing the same desolation that they once experienced. They become that beacon to others – a guide on the path to recovery.
You will find your true power and purpose when you come to terms, recognize, acknowledge, contemplate and deal with your spiritual self.
It is the spiritual self that will make your heart flip!
It is God’s Spirit within you that brings you joy and peace.
It is not the intellectual self, the emotional self or the physical self, but the spiritual self that will uncover your gifts and ignite your passions.
It is your spiritual relationship with God that will lead you to your purpose.
